For over 40 years this company has supplied fresh produce from local farmers to restaurants and school districts. Now it is also possible for individuals to order and pay for produce online at their website. Three of us take turns going down to pick up the produce and bring it to the Center at 5 p.m. on Thursday.
The website is https://www.Abe-El.com . You can order the Valu-Box of the week for $20, and/or order from the list of over 100 items on several pages (one page has organic produce). Please contact Sulfiati at 336-9362 or Joni at 553-2225 if you have questions.
This is a service provided by Tulare County but Fresno County can also come. Food deliveries are on every other Monday from 10 to 11 a.m. at SCC. This is for those who are food challenged (same idea as the commodities distributions in various locations).
If you or someone you know would like to participate in these weekly deliveries, please send contact information to Joni Jordan by either email, text or call (559-553-2225). The deadline is noon on Wednesday. Once you have signed up, you don't need to do so again. Also contact Joni if you want to get notifications via Facebook.
The Tulare County Bookmobile will come monthly to SCC except in the winter. The last visit for this year will be on Sat., Oct 2 from noon to 3:00. This mobile unit operates as its own branch library and you can sign up for a library card if you don't already have one. Books checked out in October will not be due until the unit comes up again in a few months!
This is a sample of the weekly offers from Abe-El. We place orders for this area every other week.
NA stands for Narcotics Anonymous. This program is associated with the larger NA infrastructure for those who want to attend regularly. SCC is happy to be able to host this service to the community. We are able to do this because a couple with 30 years of experience in running these groups has moved here. They would like to continue their service here in our communities. Here is a statement from the NA literature: There are no strings attached to NA. We are not affiliated with any other organizations, we have no initiation fees or dues, no pledges to sign, no promises to make to anyone. ...We are not interested in what you have done in the past...but only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help. If you would like more information please call 805-291-9048.
